Five Storm Safety Tips From Doctors

Hurricane Florence is being called a “monster storm” which is predicted to bring flooding, high winds, downed trees and power outages to North Carolina. Prevent a trip to the emergency room with these Five Storm Safety Tips from the doctors at Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center.

 

1. Make sure you have clear paths in your home in case of a power outage. High winds often trigger lengthy power outages. According to Dr. Alyssa Carroll, “Eliminate the chance of trips and falls in the dark by creating clear pathways in your home before the storm arrives.”

 

2. Always wear shoes indoors. “The most common home injuries we treat are centered around being barefoot, so always wear shoes,” said Dr. Jordan Meyers. “If you have an aversion to wearing shoes inside for cleanliness reasons, get an indoor house shoe or slipper.”

 

3. Put aside stylish shoes and wear sturdy footwear. One of the best ways to prevent a trip to the ER during inclement weather is to make sure your feet and ankles are properly protected. Ditch the cute flip flops. Dr. Carroll advised, “When you’re outside on slippery surfaces such as decks and asphalt, make sure you are wearing sturdy shoes with good tread.”

 

4. Keep a first aid kit and emergency phone numbers handy. “You never know what you may encounter with the threat of high winds, flooding and power outages, said Dr. Alan Boehm. “Have a first aid kit accessible, and remember you can always call 911 for emergencies, even during power outages.”

 

5. Make sure your kids are protecting their feet. Dr. Kirk Woelffer recommended, “Don’t forget about the children– protected feet are happy feet.”

Here We Grow Again: We’re Coming to Holly Springs!

Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center is pleased to announce the addition of its Holly Springs office in November 2018.

The practice will offer foot and ankle care for all ages. Services will include surgical and non-surgical treatment for skin and nail conditions, fractures, sprains, sports injuries, birth deformities, foreign bodies, diabetic foot care and disorders, pediatric conditions, nerve disorders, and wounds.

“Our vision is to serve the community by providing compassionate and progressive foot and ankle care for children, adolescents, and adults,” said Dr. Kirk Woelffer. “And our mission is to provide advanced care through a dedicated, well-trained healthcare team in a friendly, professional setting.”

“We offer the latest advances in technology to get you back on your feet quickly,” said Dr. Alan Boehm. “This includes digital x-rays, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), ultrasound, 3D scanning for custom molded orthotics, and laser therapy for toenail fungus.”

The Holly Springs office will also feature an onsite nail care salon with medically trained technicians who will perform podiatrist-supervised pedicures for patients, including those with diabetes.

Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center’s surgeons Dr. Kirk Woelffer, Dr. Alan Boehm, Dr. Jordan Meyers, and Dr. Alyssa Carroll bring over 35 years of trusted podiatry experience. They volunteer at Open Door Clinic, Alliance Medical Ministry, and Project Homeless Connect.

“Holly Springs has seen a tremendous amount of growth, with little increase in available foot and ankle care,” said Dr. Jordan Meyers. “Making time to go to the doctor is challenging enough, so we are excited to provide advanced foot and ankle care a little closer to home for all the great people in Holly Springs and its surrounding areas. This also provides an opportunity for us to not only offer great medical care, but contribute and give back to the community through various avenues of charitable work.”
